Baird cuts Boeing to Neutral following 'Textgate'
Baird analyst Peter Arment downgraded Boeing to Neutral from Buy and cut his price target on the shares to $342 from $445 as he sees increased production risks following what he is calling "Textgate" involving two Boeing test pilot's messages regarding MCAS tendencies in the simulator. The text messages that have come to light will create further headline risk for the certification efforts with the FAA and likely with other regulators, such as in Europe, and he also initially expects a "poor reception" with with the flying public, Arment tells investors. The analyst, who cut his 2020-2022 free cash flow and EPS estimates for Boeing, became at least the third Wall Street analyst to downgrade Boeing shares this morning.

Stifel downgrades Southwest on risk of deal to lessen Boeing dependency
Stifel analyst Joseph DeNardi downgraded Southwest Airlines (LUV) to Hold from Buy with a price target of $60, down from $75. The stock in morning trading is up 7c to $53.55. Southwest is an all Boeing (BA) 737 airline, which makes its business model dependent on 737s, DeNardi tells investors in a research note. Southwest's decision to remove the 737 MAX from its schedule through early February, a "deteriorating" relationship between the Federal Aviation Administration and Boeing, and reports that Boeing may be looking at a 737 MAX rate cut indicate that Southwest "may be nearing a tipping point" where the duration of the MAX grounding pushes it to consider more significant and strategic solutions, including acquisitions, DeNardi contends. The analyst believes an acquisition by Southwest motivated by a desire to diversify away from the MAX "creates significant risks" in the near term for the company. DeNardi today also upgraded shares of JetBlue Airways (JBLU) to Buy from Hold.

JetBlue could be worth $28 in a takeout scenario, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Joseph DeNardi upgraded JetBlue to Buy from Hold with a price target of $24, up from $22. In a research note to investors, DeNardi says that a prolonged grounding of Boeing's (BA) 737 MAX is an "existential threat" to Southwest's (LUV) business model and that the "only reasonable option" Southwest has to address this risk is through an acquisition of JetBlue or Alaska Air (ALK). When combined with JetBlue's attractive CASMx story into 2020, the analyst now sees the increased likelihood of M&A as presenting a sufficiently attractive risk/reward setup to justify an upgrade. JetBlue could be worth $28 in a takeout scenario, DeNardi says. The Stifel analyst downgraded Southwest to Hold from Buy.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Boeing (BA) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Credit Suisse and to Neutral from Buy at UBS. 2. Spirit AeroSystems (SPR) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at UBS with analyst Myles Walton citing Spirit's "outsized exposure" to Boeing's (BA) 737 Max program for the downgrade. 3. Gildan Activewear (GIL) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Edward Jones. 4. IBM (IBM) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at UBS with analyst Munjal Shah saying he believes it will be difficult for the company to achieve sustainable mid-single digit revenue growth. 5. Alcoa (AA) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Gabelli with analyst Justin Bergner saying Acloa's 12% two day post-earnings rally reflected better than expected proceeds from non-core asset sales and a view that estimates have bottomed.
